"I love my MEFO tires !! They felt planted on the road even around 100 mph. Better on gravel and dirt than the Scorpions. I even got suprised riding on forest service roads , facing a few miles of rutted slick mud, and the MEFO Explorer's pulled me through it almost like knobbies !!
Thanks Twisted Throttle!!"
